Asymptotic Freedom

This cool word came up again Wednesday when the Nobel prize Geeks were describing what they discovered back in 1973.

“Physics laureates David Gross, Frank Wilczek and David Politzer, all Americans, described the force that binds particles inside the atomic nucleus, and the work that led up to their discovery of asymptotic freedom, which has helped science get closer to “a theory for everything,” according to the award academy.” USA Today
Wikipedia definition:
“In physics, asymptotic freedom is the property of some gauge theories in which the interaction between the particles, such as quarks, becomes arbitrarily weak at ever shorter distances, i.e. length scales that asymptotically converge to zero (or, equivalently, energy scales that become arbitrarily large.”

What about its relationship to emerging church?
Anyone want to try it on for size?


Andrew Jones has been blogging since 1997. He is based in San Francisco with his two daughters but also travels the globe to find compelling stories of early stage entrepreneurs changing their world. Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)
